The Single Life~Day 3 of The 30 Day Blog Challenge

Hello lovely readers and followers! Welcome back to Day 3 of the 30 Day Blog Challenge. 

Today’s Topic: Describe Being Single


Well, I’ve already written a guest post on being a single Christian lady, but I didn’t really share my personal experience. I guess that’s because writing about love and relationships is a very personal and sensitive topic to approach.

I’ve dated before. I had a couple of relationships in high school that ended badly, and one at the beginning of college that wasn’t what God wanted for me. Right now I am single, and I would say that I am pretty content–most of the time. There are definitely moments I wish I was in a relationship, especially during holidays and family gatherings. But most of the time I’m so busy with school, writing, and church, that I hardly notice it.

I guess one of the biggest worries for a single Christian woman is if they will remain that way forever (assuming they want to be married one day). I do want to be married one day, but I’m quite young to be worried about timing I guess. I know I just need to trust that God is a good Father with good plans for my life. He knows what I need, and He knows what you need. We just have to wait on His timing.

I guess the plan for my single years is to glorify God as much as I can, growing in my faith and having a blast while doing it. I am working on building friendships with other Christians and discovering the talents and gifts God has instilled in me. Of course, it’s a rocky road being a twenty-something girl with no clue what the future holds. But isn’t that in itself kind of romantic and inspiring?

Life is an adventure, and I want to make the most of it–even the challenging parts. God can use a single person just as much as He can a married person, if not more (Hello Jesus and Paul!). So I guess this is my prime time to help make an impact on the world around me.

Yes, I am single–but that’s okay! Even though I sometimes wonder about my mysterious future husband, I am happy. Yup, that’s right. I am happy–right here and right now. My joy is Christ, and He has blessed me beyond belief.

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well (Matthew 6:33 NIV).

  1. I came by thinking that a woman who has been married 40 years might not “fit” here. I was SO wrong – so much in your post touched me and then you wrote this: “My joy is Christ, and He has blessed me beyond belief.” We have much in common!

      I’m so glad Joy! Isn’t God amazing? I love the blogging community. God bless you!

  2. Love your blog name! Yes, we need to love the season we are in! Once we are content with what God has provided for us, He will increase our provisions. It is His timing, this we know!

  3. This is a great post! I well remember the single Christian woman days. “Will I be single forever?” is a common worry that I (and I’m pretty sure all my friends) shared, but it wasn’t the case for me, and I’ll pray it won’t be the case for you either! (I’m sure it won’t 😉 ) You’ve got a great attitude about it! And I can’t wait to check out the rest of your challenge 🙂

      Thanks for commenting! It’s nice to know there’s hope haha 😉 I figure, if the Lord has given me a desire and passion for marriage and children, then I can count on His faithfulness! In the mean time, I’m enjoying my single life as well. God bless you!

  4. Great Post Emily – I think that’s definitely a concern for many people, “Will I or won’t I get married?”. I think the important thing is to trust that God’s plans are good and He has the future under control. If His plan is for you to be single, it will be good, if his plan is for you to be married, that will be good. Basically, our job is just to trust and keep busy with Kingdom work.😊Keep up the awesome posts girl!
